What could be better than building your very own pillow fort? Now your child can do it with historical accuracy.
Top Manchester firm Artform Architects have worked with home furnishers Wayfair to design a pillow fort from historical drawings – one that you can make at home in 5 minutes or less. You may need to grab every pillow and cushion you have in the house!
“These were fairly simple, robust structures constructed from timber or stone and were introduced into the UK by the Normans in the 11th Century. Their main purpose was to act as a fortified tower or residence that would act as a refuge of last resort, should the rest of the motte-and-bailey castle be overtaken.”
So, now you can pass the history facts on to the kids, have fun and the perfect space for kids to play, read or have a little picnic too – what are you waiting for?
